The last week has seen an uptick in murders—-8 in a 7-day period—-across the city, including two men killed on Saturday. Still, MPD says that at 95, the number of homicides in the District are lower than the 106 seen last year at this time.
If every week had been like the last one, though, D.C. would have 416 murders under its belt by the end of the year.
